First commencement in Penn Auditorium

The tradition of holding Commencement in the William Penn Outdoor Auditorium (weather permitting) continues to this day. The ceremonial entrance to the auditorium celebrates George School’s Quaker connections. Known as Quaker Walk, it is paved with sixty-eight stones collected from Quaker sites in the United States, England, and the West Indies, and from George School’s first sister schools in Germany. Each year, a group of juniors carrying a daisy chain leads the procession and then lines the path as seniors file in.
